DoYouObeyGodAsRulerOrManAct-5-29

AC 5:29 Peter and the apostles responded and said: “It

Is a necessity that we obey God rather than humans. 224 

224

We obey God rather than humans: Or, we must obey. Obedience to

God must become all religious or civil authorities. The Christians have

Recognized The God as DESPOTA, or Absolute Ruler, Sovereign Lord.

(29) Then Peter and the other apostles.—The whole company of the Twelve,

it must be remembered, were now the objects of attack, and they all accept

Peter as their spokesman.

We ought to obey God rather than men.—The words are an assertion of the

Same general law of duty as that of Acts 4:19-20, but the command of the

Angel in Acts 5:20 had given them a new significance.

Acts 5:29

We generally think of this verse only in terms of a state of persecution, but its principle applies all the time. Life is a series of compulsions which lead us to choices. These compulsions come in two varieties: 1) forced, as by a gun to our temple which says, "Do this or else," and 2) unforced, just as each dawn comes regardless, gently persuading us to rise and meet our duties. Each pushes us to choose, and the only real difference in them is their strength.

We are surrounded by various elements that, forced or unforced, exert pressure to compel us to submit to them out of loyalty. Both good and evil are compulsions pressuring us to follow them. Our culture urges us to "go along." Family ties influence us to blend in. Our peers, friends in business, school, or neighborhood buddies, entice us to conform. These compulsions sweep us along, and all too frequently we go right into idolatry to satisfy our desires to be accepted and feel secure. But Peter and the other apostles said, "We ought to obey God rather than men."
